With an increase in online shopping for every type of purchase, grocery suppliers have enormous opportunities in front of them – along with a new set of problems to solve.
Our automation system helps you overcome these challenges to offer a great online delivery service without compromising your in-store experience.
When you automate operations, you gain full and accurate visibility of your entire stock, allowing you to fulfill online orders with far fewer errors and ensure all your customers are well taken care of – no matter how they shop.
Extending your business to allow for online shopping can quickly translate into an uncomfortably busy shop floor as orders are gathered and prepared for delivery.
By implementing AutoStore™, you reduce the stock storage footprint, the amount of labor, and the store congestion. This allows your in-store customers to continue getting the best attention and service, while seamlessly serving your online customers. And every happy customer is a loyal customer.
The cost and time involved to get up and running makes many grocery retailers reluctant to fully embrace the possibilities of e-commerce – especially when you’re working to maintain a high level of in-store service and watching the bottom-line.
Automation cost-effectively raises your efficiency by reducing your labor requirements. It also reduces real estate costs as far less space is needed than a traditional shelved warehouse. All of this adds up to a level of home delivery service you can offer, meeting the needs of every customer while remaining profitable for your business.
Conscientious customers appreciate the reassurance of understanding the origins of their purchases. With the enhanced visibility our automated system provides, you will know exactly where and how long for every item in your inventory as it travels through your warehouses. You have the information you need when faced with customers' supply-chain questions.
